This is a matching numbers Jaguar E-Type Series 2 2+2 still in its original colours of Regency Red with Beige leather trim. The car has a structurally exceptional bodyshell and was brought over to the UK from the USA in 1990 and dry stored until a restoration program was undertaken on behalf of a leading Motor Group Chairman and classic car collector. From 1999 to 2002 the E-Type was professionally converted to RHD and restored/re-commissioned as required by specialists based in the North East. The excellent bodyshell did not require any metal work and was treated to a full re-paint and fitted up with some new chrome and a new set of chrome wire wheels. The interior was subject of some re-trimming work and the Jaguar was mechanically re-commissioned with new brakes, suspension overhaul, new steering system as part of the RHD conversion, gearbox overhaul and the engine rebuild. Since completion in 2002, the E-Type has covered less than 1000 miles and has been dry stored and very occasionally takenout on the road. On arrival with us, our workshops have inspected the car and we can report the car has an excellent, strong and fit engine and gearbox having been rebuilt so few miles ago. APY 35G will be sold with 12 months MOT, freshly serviced and is an excellent strong driver that presents very well throughout. Price: 52,995

This wonderful Alvis Speed 20 4.3 litre carries the distinction of being the best driving, most thoroughly enjoyable 1930's tourer we've had in the 27 year history of the company. DMX 829 also has a particularly interesting history and has been subject of a complete rebuild using an authentic original Vanden Plas body. Nick Szkiler, our founder came back from the appraisal and test drive of this car stating, 'It's glorious and I've not driven anything like it'. The fact that it is an ex-Albert Sparrowhawk Alvis rather explains it. Back in the day, you bought a new chassis from a quality manufacturer like Alvis and clothed it with your chosen body from a number of contemporary coachbuilders, Cross and Ellis, Charlesworth and Vanden Plas for example. Almost twenty years ago, this car was rebuilt by a gifted enthusiast who really knew these cars. The chassis was originally built as a Speed 20 Charlesworth saloon in 1936. By 1965 it was in quite rough condition and was offered for sale in the AlvisOwners Club at 90. By the late 1990's the car was a rolling chassis and restoration commenced using a genuine Vanden Plas Tourer body, originally fitted to a Derby Bentley. The body is from one of five tourers built of the type, this one being documented as from RC44. The car was fitted with the more potent engine from a 4.3 litre SB Charlesworth saloon. The builder, Albert Sparrowhawk is well known in Alvis Circles as a spirited racing driver and builder. He owned the Bentley from which this body came, only buying the body back after the new owner removed it to fit a replica Bentley Le Mans tourer. Sparrowhawk had some success in motor racing:; April 1994 VSCC Silverstone:; Richard Pilkington was hopeful of repeating last year's success in the Fox & Nicholl Trophy with the Totnes Motor Museum's 1938 Talbot, but he disappeared from second place after one lap when a drive coupling sheared. That left Albert Sparrowhawk (Alvis) with the early lead from Bob Gilbert's Bentley. Arriving late on the grid,Rodney Felton was forced to start his Alfa Monza from the back but by the end of lap one he was up to 10th, and four laps later had demoted Sparrowhawk to second. The earlier Sparrowhawk Alvis, driven by David Heimann, displaced Gilbert to take third after half-distance and closed up to challenge for second, but a spirited defence by Sparrowhawk managed to retain the place to the finish. Here he is again in May 1996:; Siverstone - Vintage allcomers race. Bob Burrell led the first half of the Fox and Nicholl Trophy Race with his familiar 8-litre Bentley-Royce, closely shadowed by Julian Bronson's Riley 'Blue Streak' Special, but a quick spin by the Bentley allowed the Riley to seize the advantage; Burrell was almost caught by the scrapping pair of Albert Sparrowhawk (Alvis) and Bob Gilbert (Bentley), Burrell and Gilbert being so engrossed in their business that they battled on for two more laps after the fall of the flag! (extracts courtesy of Motorsport magazine); The engine was meticulouslyrebuilt using high compression pistons, and the best bearings available. Once assembled it was set up by Sparrowhawk - a man who really knew how to tune them. Eighteen years and some 5,000 smiles later, the car is a gem, thoroughly sorted and truly outstanding to drive. With its very robust early synchromesh four speed gearbox, the car is a joy to drive enthusiastically. Whilst not impossible to criticise cosmetically, we know we are never likely to surpass DMX 829 as the most exhilarating, taut and lively pre-war tourer imaginable. Paintwork has aged well; the alloy bodywork is still top class and the leather upholstery, hood and weather gear now have a nicely aged patina. The engine bay presents superbly. We thought carefully about price and Nick's comment was 'If I owned this, I'd never want to part with it'. Fortunately for someone it is now on the market - though we doubt it will be for long. It's the sort of car you'd see be thrilled to see (and hear) on the Flying Scotsman Rally. DMX 829comes with VSCC Eligibility document, 'buff' logbook, dating back to 1961, MOT certificates since rebuild completion in 2000 and a comprehensive file of paperwork. Price: 124,995

690 KVA was manufactured on the 28th April 1960 and is a genuine UK, matching numbers car. The car was distributed from Ritchies, Glasgow on the 13th May 1960 and spent most of its life in Scotland. In 2012 we collected the Jaguar north of the border and sold the XK to one of our long term customers of twenty five years, a South Yorkshire based Dentist. Our Sheffield based customer owned the XK for five years and last year we sold the car to another long term friend of the business, a prominent South Wales JEC member and collector. During the early 1990's 690 KVA was subject of a major rebuild by one of Scotland's top restoration firms. The car was fully rebuilt mechanically, fitted with Vicarage Power Steering and the body restored then painted in Jaguar Cotswold Blue and the interior trimmed in Grey leather. Classic Restoration then winter stored the XK for almost twenty years. The XK only had summer use and just 4500 miles were covered to 2012. the During its five years in South Yorkshire, thecar covered a further 1000 miles and was subject of around 4,000 of further work to enhance the car. Vicarage Ltd supplied parts to service the power steering with a new alternator belt and power steering pump belt, Guy Broad supplied upgraded rear brakes, electronic ignition, a negative earth Facet fuel pump and poly wishbone bush set. Jaguar specialists M&C Wilkinson have stripped down the front suspension, installed new stub axles, new bearings, replaced top ball joints and re-shimmed bottom ball joints. Since last year the XK has been treated to electronic igntition and has atteneded several shows in South Wales. 690 KVA comes back to totally on the button and in glorious condition. It drives superbly with a wonderful engine holding excellent oil pressure. The four speed Moss gearbox is delightful to use, the overdrive comes in smoothly and with upgraded brakes, rebuilt front suspension and Vicarage power steering the car is just fabulous to drive as expected with less than 6000 miles sincerebuild. The XK presents incredibly well with a stunning glass finish. The Cotswold Blue paintwork is excellent, the body is sharp with lovely panels and chrome work including wires is very impressive. The engine bay presents well as a usable and superbly restored car and the underside is smartly presented and in excellent order. The re-trimmed upholstery has aged nicely with impressive leather, high quality carpets, headlining door cards and dashboard.

The Naylor TF 1700 was inspired by the MG TF built at Abingdon during the 1950's. They were developed as an improved form of the original with increased power and improved braking and suspension but still retaining the looks, styling and spirit of the original. These cars were fully type approved and had the full backing of the Austin/Rover group. The chassis is steel, the body is mounted on an ash frame and the body panels are also steel. To meet legislative requirements of the 1980's, the doors had to have forward hinges and instruments had to be in front of the driver rather than in the centre of the dash. The engine is an Austin Rover 'O' series 1700cc unit with four speed gearbox. This beautifully presented low mileage example has covered just 32,000 miles from new and has been with its most recent owners for 22 years. Whilst this example was built it in 1986, it was dry stored and not actually registered until 1993 when it was subsequently sold to a collector based in Godalming in Surrey whonever actually drove the car. The car didn't spend long in Surrey, in late 1993 it was sold to a private owner in Warwickshire who placed the private registration mark 229 BFW onto the car to give it a more period look. The car was now getting use for the first time and after two years of motoring, the TF was sold to a BMW dealership in Warwick where it stayed for two years. On the 1st February 1997, the most recent owners bought the car from the Warwick dealership and have loved owning this wonderful car for 22 years. The Naylor's long term owners bought the car whilst living in Herefordshire but after several years of ownership moved to France and took the car with them. The Naylor has been thoroughly enjoyed for many years, touring the rural roads of Western France in fine weather and has led a sheltered, cosseted life where it's been maintained with no expense spared and has been polished, detailed and kept looking its best. Although the owners moved to France, they still attended Naylor CarClub UK events and organised a Club holiday to Normandy visiting Monet's Garden, Honfleur, and the Normandy coast. The owners also joined the French Car Club, AVA, Amicale Vehicules Anglais (Friends of English Cars) based in the Loire Valley which was around one hour from their home. One of the longest distance touring trips covered in the Naylor was in 2009 when the car was taken to Switzerland where it performed faultlessly on mountain roads so the car has a proven record or reliable touring. 229 BFW is accompanied by a file of invoices showing careful and regular maintenance and has arrived with us directly from France in showroom condition and ready to sell. The car is in delightful condition, is original with excellent paintwork and bodywork, lovely chrome, a smart clean interior and full weather requirement. On the road 229 BFW is delightful and is as set out, far more advanced than an original 50's TF. It's powerful, keeps up with modern traffic, ideal for long distance touring and asexpected with its low mileage, is in strong mechanical order, will be sold with a fresh service and 12 months MOT and is UK registered.

We are delighted to offer this incredibly rare, pre war Aston Martin onto the market. This is one of just 24 15/98 four seater tourers ever built and the car comes with exceptional history, provenance and is presented in show class condition. The Aston Martin 15/98 was introduced in 1937 and maintained the policy of developing refined and luxurious motor cars. Aston Martin used their new 1949c overhead camshaft four cylinder engine that was capable of achieving 85mph, mated with a Moss syncromesh gearbox, Girling rod operated brakes and Luvax hydraulic rear dampers. Production of the model was incredibly low, only 176 2 litre cars were ever built and today the Aston Martin 15/98 is both very rare and highly sought after. DAF 659 was manufactured at Feltham, Middlesex and first registered to Mrs Cicily Wilkinson of St Minver, Cornwall on the 17th April 1937 via Lancelot Prideaux-Brune's Winter Garden Garage in London's Pancras Street at a cost of just 575. A former Aston Martin board member andfounding committee member of the Aston Martin Owners Club, Prideaux-Brune owned an estate in Padstow, Cornwall and may well have known his lady customer socially. The intrepid Mrs Wilkinson, who had not only learnt to fly during the Great War but also drove ambulances on the Western Front, kept 'DAF 659' until May 1938. It is known to have belonged subsequently to John Glaisyer, Frank Scrase, David Brister, Duncan Andrew and A W F Simmonds before coming into the ownership of the Hollinshead family, who kept the Aston in barn storage for some 37 years. In 2003, the Aston Martin was sold in 'barn find' condition and was in need of major restoration. The owner commissioned Simon Hawkes Restoration of Easton-in-Gordano, Avon to carry out a complete nut and bolt, ground up restoration that was carried out to an exceptional standard. The engine was comprehensively overhauled incorporating an uprated EN40 billet steel crankshaft, Arrow con-rods, 1' SU carburettors together with a new camshaft, valves,big-end bearing shells, timing chain, Omega high-compression pistons plus reconditioned water and oil pumps etc. All parts were supplied by marque specialist Ecurie Bertelli. Back in the 1960's the Aston Martin was fitted with a Jaguar four speed manual gearbox and during rebuild this was retained and further enhanced with the addition of a competition overdrive switch and new clutch. Orson Equipment supplied new front, rear hubs and drive shafts, while Ecurie Bertelli renewed the kingpins and provided five new 17' wire wheels. The interior was re-trimmed by J Krych, Adrian Sidwell overhauled the instruments and S&T Plating were responsible for refurbishing the brightwork. The restoration took some three years to c omplete at a cost of around 83,000 and is documented by a video on memory stick. Since completion, 'DAF 659' has undertaken numerous enjoyable runs to destinations including Brittany, Normandy and Goodwood for the Revival meeting. In 2013 the Aston Martin was purchased by the most recentowner and it has since formed part of his impressive collection. The car has been kept in showroom condition, is of exhibition standard and has been maintained to the highest of standards. During recent ownership the Aston Martin has been back to Ecurie Bertelli for additional works that have cost in excess of 8,000. On arrival with us, this rare Aston Martin has been through our workshops for pre sale checks and has then been driven over to us faultlessly. The car is presented in outstanding condition and it has such a powerful presence. The lines of the car are just beautiful and with its first class paintwork, trim and chrome work, the car is ready to grace any collection. DAF 659 drives superbly, offers impressive performance from the rebuilt 1949cc four cylinder engine and offers reliable open pre war motoring in what is a very rare, prestigious and highly desirable marque. This would most certainly make an important addition to any serious Aston Martin collection. DAF 659 comes with two largefolders of paperwork to include the original brown 'buff' logbook, copy build records, numerous restoration and maintenance invoices, old tax discs and previous owner correspondence.

We are delighted to offer for sale this motoring icon of the 1960s - a top class, matching numbers Aston Martin DB5. The legendary lightweight DB5 design continued David Brown's association with Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera of Milan which began with the DB2. A wonderfully styled and executed Grand Tourer, the DB5 is widely regarded as one of the most charismatic shapes of its era. Made famous by the fictional character 'James Bond', more than half a century later it is still admired as the most beautiful Aston Martin ever built. The car must be one of the most sophisticated and understated cars in the world; a car to take anywhere, in any company. This particular example was first registered on May 12th 1964 and supplied new by Aston Martin dealership Brooklands. A comprehensive file of documentation accompanies the car detailing its history back to the 1970's. With little over 1000 examples ever built and less than 400 known survivors in the UK, these rare and incredibly desirable cars are inshort supply. The model was only in production from July 1963 to September 1965 but received considerable praise for its performance. The DB5 was capable of 148 mph with a 0-60 mph recorded in 7.1 seconds making it one of the fastest cars available and a match for the best very best in Europe. The DB5 was the replacement for the DB4 and still featured the Tadek Marek designed straight-six all alloy engine. This was enlarged to 3995cc producing 282 BHP and a new five speed ZF gearbox replaced the four speed unit fitted to the DB4. This elegant and collectable car has wonderful presence and its outstanding condition will not disappoint. The car was the subject of a major body-off restoration during the late 1980's. The invoices and photographic record are present and improvement expenditure continued throughout the 1990's. In 2011 the car was purchased by a Knightsbridge resident who owned the car for four years, spending 47,000 on a variety of work with Aston Martin specialists. In 2015 it was soldto the most recent owner. In order to ensure the car was in pristine condition, a further restoration began. The engine was removed and sent to world famous Aston Martin engine specialists RS Williams for rebuild. Between 2015 and 2018 a staggering 115,000 was spent, 40,000 on the engine alone taking an already sound car up to the highest possible standard. The meticulous owner - a true Aston Martin enthusiast and Club official has been fanatical in ensuring its total reliability having had a programme of work carried out with no expense spared. Since completion the DB5 has covered running in miles only and represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a 'well sorted' example to the discerning buyer. Invoices for all recent work accompany the car and RS Williams have detailed the comprehensive rebuild and upgrade of the engine. During the rebuild procedure they carried out an improved internal waterway modification to their own specification, fitted the highly desirable 4.2 litre specificationliners and bored and honed the cylinder liners to suit Cosworth pistons. The crankshaft assembly was re-ground and balanced, a new clutch pressure assembly fitted and the clutch assembly balanced to the crankshaft. The new steel connecting rods were balanced, new timing chains and tensioners fitted and the water pump rebuilt. The oil pump was replaced, as were the front pulley, all gaskets and hoses. The cylinder head was completely stripped down and new guides fitted. The machining was carried out to accept oversize unleaded specification valve seat inserts. After overhaul the cylinder head was re-fitted with a new gasket and then fitted with carburettors rebuilt to 4.2 litre specification. The throttle linkage, HT lead rail and water pipes were re-chromed and re-plated and on completion the engine was mounted onto a dynamometer for setting up. This including mixture setting, running in and optimising of ignition timing and fuelling. The work to the engine is a true masterpiece and not only doesit present beautifully, the performance is considerably enhanced by the 4.2 specification upgrade and on the road it is simply outstanding. Further mechanical work carried out during the most recent programme includes a new aluminium fuel tank, new aluminium radiator, high-torque starter motor and a new exhaust system. The DB5 has a top class body with stunning paintwork having had a 35,000 body restoration and complete re-paint in 2016. Various items of brightwork were re-chromed, the engine bay detailed and 10,000 was spent on the upholstery to ensure the car was completed to a beautiful standard throughout. Very rarely will an example come on the market having had such high quality recent restoration and as a result, this DB5 can be purchased with absolute confidence. This DB5 presents with investment class quality in every aspect and offers the ultimate 1960's Grand Tourer driving experience and is finished in one of the most highly desirable colour schemes of Silver Birch with Red Vaumol hideupholstery.

This outstanding B Spec Daimler Dart SP250 has arrived with us from Aberdeenshire with a genuine warranted mileage of just 70,000 and an outstanding history back to new including the original bill of sale. The Daimler has had just four owners from new, has been subject of a major restoration to a top class condition and has had a fully documented engine rebuild by Daimler V8 specialists just 1000 miles ago. Adding further to the desirability of this car, it does have its correct, original factory engine. The 5800 WY was supplied new by Tunniclffe's of Ilkley and even the original delivery note from Daimler to the supplying dealership is with the history. The car was ordered new by a Ronald Wilson Esq in Ilkley on the 25th April 1961 costing just 1098.6.9. The first owner kept the car 27 years and kept all invoices and documentation of early service history. Within the first three years of ownership services were carried out at 6623, 7763, 9142, 10097, 13311, 14571, 16690, 18325, 20654, 21724 and23430 miles on the 11th August 1964. Records in the history file confirm a speedo change at 24232 miles so from service history dating from October 1964 we know the Dart was serviced at 24697, 25731, 26530, 27465, 27946, 30015, 33233, 35261, 36437, 37800, 42232, 43736, 48111 and 49326 miles in July 1969. The wonderful original typed invoices make fascinating reading and meticulously detail exactly what work was being carried out on the car. From 1970 to 1988 the Daimler was unused and was later sold on by the owners family to its second registered owner. The Dart was then owned by a Yorkshire based brewer who kept the car for two years before selling it to the third owner in Tadcaster. 5800 WY stayed in Tadcaster with its third owner for 23 years and was subject of a major restoration.
